The Next-Generation Lexus LS

The Lexus LS 400 was introduced in January 1989 as the first Lexus car. For nearly three decades, it has been the company’s flagship, setting the template for the style, luxury and performance that would inform everything that came after. The fourth generation, introduced in 2006, has clocked a decade in service. Even accounting for […]

Lexus GS F Debuts

The Lexus F marque only appears on a select few vehicles built by the luxury automaker, each of which originates with the Lexus Vehicle Performance Development Division. The “F” stands for “Flagship,” and is also a subtle nod to the Fuji Speedway, where Lexus has tested many of its performance vehicles. The line was inaugurated […]

Lexus Hybrid Sales Booming

Just a few short years ago, hybrid cars and SUVs looked like the wave of the future. Environmental concerns were part of the picture, but one of the biggest drivers of hybrid sales was simple economics. Americans felt hemmed in by the recession and rising gas prices, and hybrids seemed to offer a hedge. The […]

The Human Side of Lexus

When you think of a car assembly line, the first things you probably think of are precision and repetition, a car moving slowly and inexorably among a line of machines and robots bolting, riveting, and welding. It’s not quite as often that a car company takes pride in the human element in car building, but […]

Lexus RX 350: the Secret to Success

November 23, 2015 2016 Lexus, Lexus RX No Comments

The Lexus RX crossover is practically the foundation of the company’s success. The compact SUV routinely sells 100,000 vehicles per year, and shows no signs of slowing its pace. If anything, a strong showing by Lexus at the Los Angeles Auto Show indicates two things: one, that this trend will continue, and two, that nearly 20 years after Lexus invented the luxury crossover segment in 1998, the company still has plenty of surprises in store.  … Continue Reading

Lexus Promises Self-Driving Car by 2020

November 8, 2015 2016 Lexus No Comments

A little while ago, we passed the date on which Back to the Future II took place. The movie’s predictions were mostly, shall we say, a bit off. The fashions don’t look anything like they predicted back in 1985 (which, in hindsight, is probably a good thing). The Jaws franchise hasn’t gone to 19 movies (ditto). And the Cubs still haven’t won the World Series (c’mon, they were underdogs). But Lexus has been giving us glimpses of the future lately, and things are starting to look interesting.  … Continue Reading

2016 Lexus GX: A Second Look

November 2, 2015 Featured, Lexus GX No Comments

The Lexus GX (“Grand Crossover”) first appeared in 2002 for the 2003 model year. The 2016 Lexus GX belongs to the second generation, which was introduced in 2009; the first generation GX was built between 2002 and 2008. The original GX was the 470, so named for its 271 hp 4.7L V8 engine. These days, the Lexus GX 460 sports a 4.6L V8 that, while smaller, produces 302 horsepower. And while there’s more than time separating the 2016 Lexus GX from the original 2003 model, both still share an uncompromising fusion of class with a surprising degree of function.  … Continue Reading

Lexus LX and GX to Be Replaced?

October 20, 2015 Featured No Comments

With the Lexus LX 450 in 1997, Lexus practically invented the full-size luxury SUV segment. When the GX470 debuted six years later, it too was a pioneer, this time in the midsize luxury SUV class. Both SUVs have done well by the Lexus name, earning critical praise, raves from consumers, and healthy worldwide sales. By all acccounts, you’d think that the larger Lexus SUVs—now a few generations into their life cycle with the 2016 Lexus GX and the 2016 Lexus LX—would be as safe as houses.  … Continue Reading

2016 Lexus RX350: Style Plus Substance

October 8, 2015 Featured, Lexus RX No Comments

The 2016 Lexus RX350 is the latest in a long line that stretches back to the 1999 Lexus RX 300 midsize luxury crossover. Many things have changed in the 17 years that separate the two models, and with the 2016 Lexus RX350, those changes are very apparent. This crossover has received a design refresh that stands to make the RX — already a force to be reckoned with—an even more formidable contender.  … Continue Reading

2015 Lexus RC: Lots of Comfort in a Compact Coupe

October 1, 2015 2015 Lexus, Featured No Comments

The Lexus RC is a recent addition to the Lexus lineup, having only entered production in 2014 for the 2015 model year. The 2015 Lexus RC is considered a “compact executive car,” meaning that it’s a compact luxury car. Or, if you’d rather, proof that good things come in small packages.  … Continue Reading

The 2016 Lexus RX: Redesigned and Road-Ready

September 21, 2015 2016 Lexus, Featured No Comments

The 2016 Lexus RX is on its way. This iteration represents a new generation of the vehicle that revolutionized the luxury crossover segment, adding new standard features and options to make an already-compelling crossover even more desirable. In other words, what has long been a class leader among crossovers, and one of Lexus’s top sellers, looks like it’s about to solidify its position on both fronts. While it won’t be here ’til November, the automotive press is already on notice and drivers’ palms are already sweaty in anticipation.  … Continue Reading

2015 Lexus NX 200t: Expect Big Things

September 10, 2015 Featured, Lexus NX No Comments

As gas prices plummet, big vehicles are once again a big thing. SUVs, once pronounced all but dead when gas prices were at all-time highs, are proving to be resilient, and are reaching pre-recession levels of popularity. There’s a new wrinkle, however: it’s not just the bigger SUVs that are getting a boost. Smaller crossovers and compact SUVs have carved out a healthy niche in the market, popular with those who appreciate the comfort, cargo capacity, height, and the smooth ride, but who don’t need the size. Against that backdrop, the 2015 Lexus NX crossover truly stands out.  … Continue Reading

Suspense Builds for Possible Flagship Lexus Coupe

September 3, 2015 2016 Lexus, Featured No Comments

When the Lexus LF-LC took its first bow at the Detroit Auto Show in January, 2012, it set off quite a bit of speculation in the automotive press. Its design was a bit of a departure for Lexus. While the concept’s design and proposed specs bear a passing resemblance to the late, lamented Lexus LFA, the LF-LC has a more sporty and sculpted look that still promises the luxury we’ve come to take for granted from Lexus while also rendering it in a much more assertive form.  … Continue Reading

The Lexus Hoverboard: It Works. Here’s How.

August 23, 2015 2015 Lexus, Featured No Comments

Lexus is used to turning heads. The updated 2016 Lexus LX, recently unveiled in California, has the automotive press buzzing; the refreshed Lexus GS, unveiled the same day, is generating enthusiasm in its own right. However, the company recently outdid itself with a stunt that, until recently, seemed like it was straight out of science fiction. Lexus practically broke the internet when it announced it had built a working prototype of a hoverboard.  … Continue Reading
